This Easter weekend our greatest resource is prayer.
If you and your church could take ten minutes this Easter to pray, and if every Baptist church took up this challenge our prayers would be multiplied to thousands of hours of prayer time.
Pray for the people the Baptist churches of NZ have sent overseas and the communities they live and work in. Prayer that the poor and vulnerable of the world desperately need at this time.
I pray that this Easter, which will be so different for us all, that you can remember Mary and the disciples self-isolating in the upper room as they reflected and took on board the full impact of that first Easter and waited for what God would do next. A passage that is helping me in this time is Isaiah 30 v 15 – ‘In returning and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength'
May the suffering and risen Christ be with you this weekend.
